My research is focused on extracellular vesicles and their role in intercellular communication,  exercise physiology and skeletal muscle biology. Specifically, Dr. Vechetti’s group is particularly interested in understanding how extracellular vesicles regulate whole-body adaptation in the context of exercise and human diseases, such as obesity. Our research involves a broad range of techniques, including but not limited to genome editing, microarray, RNA-seq, lipidomics, molecular biology, immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry.
